Two Bishop Feehan players pursue attacker Marc Natichioni who scored two of the Vineyard's goals.

The Martha’s Vineyard boys’ lacrosse team beat the Bishop Feehan Shamrocks Tuesday afternoon on the Island’s rain-soaked Dan McCarthy field at the Regional High School, 6-4. The Shamrocks were previously unbeaten in the Eastern Athletic Conference.

Bishop Feehan scored first, halfway through the first quarter, but a goal by Marc Natichioni one minute later knotted the score. Nick Costello’s score put the Vineyard ahead, 2-1.

Both teams scored in the second period. Leif Iversen did the deed for the Vineyard.

At the half, Martha’s Vineyard was up, 3-2.

In the third period, goals by Natichioni and Denver Maciel more than matched the Shamrock’s scoring effort, increasing the Vineyard’s advantage to 5-3. Nick Costello’s second goal matched the Shamrock’s in the final period.
